West Ham United are interested in the signing of Bolivian midfielder Daniel Camacho, according to several reports in the country.
Eju! claim that the Hammers are keen on the 20-year-old, and have already been in contact with current club The Strongest about a move.
Diez back that up, saying that the Bolivian club will decide on the potential transfer today, adding that Camacho wants to make the move to the London Stadium.
This has all been confirmed by the club’s president, Ines Quispe, who, while not namechecking West Ham, confirmed that he’s spoken to a club.
“A representative from the English club (West Ham) called me to let me know that they are interested in Daniel Camacho,” he claimed.
“The offer is for a sale. We’ve agreed that I will check the player’s contract and the conditions in which he is on loan with Aurora.
“For The Strongest, it is a great joy that international clubs see the club as a showcase. We already have Henry Vaca playing in Peru. It is a great satisfaction for us.”
Camacho is currently on loan at Bolivian side Aurora from The Strongest and Eju explain that is how the transfer has come about.
Aurora’s current goalkeeper Agustín Cousillas is the son of Rubén Cousillas, who just so happens to be Manuel Pellegrini’s assistant at West Ham United and that’s where the interest in Camacho has originated from.
There’s no mention of a transfer fee from either newspaper, although it is explained that Camacho would be a signing for West Ham’s Under 23 side, with Eju! stating he is ‘one of the most outstanding young players in the country.’
